Do you need a last minute idea for handmade Valentines? Do you like printmaking, strange psychological fads, and things that are easy? Well then do I have a craft for you!
All you need is a printer, card stock, and tempera paint (black adds a nice authentic Rorschach look but you can use red or pink or whatever). Just print out the following PDF on card stock: Inkblot Valentines (There are three messages but of course you can choice to just print the “Happy Valentine’s Day” page if the other two are too mushy for you). Next cut them out, fold, and open back up. Now paint half a heart on one side of the fold, refold, press to transfer paint to the other half, and reopen. You may want to experiment first with how much paint and pressure to use on scrap paper. Once the cards are dry address, sign, and staple shut. That’s easy, right?!
By the way you really have opened my heart (blush).
